In 2011, there were roughly 5.3 million motor vehicle crashes in the United States, resulting in nearly 36,000 deaths. Just under 308,000 of these accidents occurred in the state of New York, with 1,153 fatalities. While the loss of human life is arguably the most heartbreaking aspect of automobile accidents, non-fatal collisions can still have extremely negative results, such as spine or neck injuries, fractured bones and other health-related impacts.
After an automobile accident it is sometimes necessary to sue the other driver and his/her insurance policy to pay for the resulting expenses. In addition to medical bills, lost wages and the cost of replacing your vehicle, you may be able to recover damages for pain and suffering, emotional distress and loss of spousal companionship. While no amount of money can replace physical well-being or the loss of a loved one due to a traumatic injury, our attorneys can help you recover money to cover the expenses that resulted from the accident and help take care of you and your family.
